Last weekend to catch Helltown Buffet

OC Register calls playwright, Aurelio Locsin, "a skilled writer of perception, wit and imagination" in a play that "recalls Philippine history and his own Filipino heritage with warmth and fondness"
OC Weekly agrees that Helltown Buffet is "a heap of fascinating Filipino traditions" whose author and director "gets big props for being extremely original with most of his content; the play is certainly never boring. (He) is most successful when it comes to his witty, poignant one-liners."

KUCI says "The first act of Helltown Buffet is as campy as they come…a tale of demons and blood and epicurism. In Act Two, however, the play becomes beautiful…. spiced with Filipino culture."
